A while back, I wanted to try Jen's Poor Man's Chicken recipe, but I was lacking the key ingredient of the fancy cream cheese mixture... Not one to be deterred, I did find a new package of STRING CHEESE sticks in our fridge and decided to get creative.... Poorer-Man's Chicken didn't sound as good, so today, I bring you "Destitute Chicken!" (Never mind that my husband noted that string cheese may cost more than a block of cream cheese... details...details...!) :)
6 boneless chicken breasts
6 sticks of string cheese
6-12 strips of uncooked bacon
Optional add-ons: shredded mozzarella or Parmesan cheese
Pound out the raw chicken breasts flat with your meat hammer.
Roll the flat chicken breast around an UNWRAPPED stick of string cheese.
Wrap/Tie 1 or 2 pieces of uncooked bacon around the whole thing.
Sprinkled with garlic salt (and any other seasonings you want).
Carefully place each roll in a gallon-size Ziploc bag. You can fit 6-8 chicken rolls in one bag.
Press out the air, seal, and freeze.
Thaw out your frozen rolls.
Lay your chicken rolls in a 9x13" pan (spray it first with PAM!).
Back for 1 hour at 350.
With 10 minutes to go, you can sprinkle extra mozzarella or Parmesan cheese over the top of it and continue cooking if you want. (If you sprinkle the cheese at the beginning of the hour, your cheese will burn.)
